What are these bugs in the pond?

The pond water is no longer green and is very clear and can see lots of wildlife in there but what are these? 



 Sorry the pics are rubbish, I can't seem to zoom into them enough without blurring but they are everywhere!!!!!!

    Could be many things that just appear over time

    My pond is exactly the same. We built it in Feb, and went through the cloudy green stage that I am aware is normal in a new pond. Yesterday I noticed the same creatures as you and seems to have coincided with it going lovely and clear so i assumed they had somehtg to do with it. Although it may be that the reason I have only just noticed them is because it has cleared, not due to their presence image

    I'm hoping they are going to be good food for my tadpoles which have still not turned into froglets.

    It might be a good idea not to fish stuff out of your pond, best left quiet, still and peaceful.

    I think the tadpoles will develop more quickly when the weather warms up image
